@edgarblythe,
David Icke, really?

This is the same David Icke who said Cuba would sink beneath the waves before the end of 1999. He has also claimed that the Queen is a shape shifting lizard, the illuminati rule the Earth, the moon landings never happened and that he is Jesus Christ.

He’s Builder’s go to source for bollocks.

@izzythepush,
I don't know Icke because I don't follow the people that follow him, apparently. I do subscribe to the quote, just not some idiot's interpretation of what it means.

@edgarblythe,
You’re not British, you didn’t witness Icke’s complete meltdown.

Just before the 97 general election which Labour won, the Greens were riding high in the polls. Icke was a prominent member already having a profile as a BBC sports commentator.

Then he proclaimed he was Jesus Christ and the Greens were dead in the water.

It was later on that he appeared on Wogan and predicted that Cuba was about to do an Atlantis.

@edgarblythe,
“Mainstream “science” is not the pursuit of knowledge overwhelmingly, it is about defending a rigid belief system and repelling all information that would demolish the foundations of those rigid beliefs.”

What is this information that Icke's referring to, "alternative facts," à la Kellyanne Conway?

I can only repeat that I don't subscribe to the man, just agreed with an isolated quote.

There is real science and there is corporate-mandated science. The latter creates symptom relief drugs that the purveyor makes billions off of and then gets sued for harming the customers. That sort of thing by way of a small sample.

@edgarblythe,
De Sade’s cell during the terror overlooked a pile of dead bodies.

@izzythepush,
I once had a copy of Satan's Saint, a biography of the man. The cover had been specially treated to feel sticky to the touch.

@edgarblythe,
I won a set of the beginner’s guide books. One of the books was on De Sade.

They’re very good if you want to wrap your head around something is a short period of time.

@izzythepush,
Sade once wrote a letter concerning the execution of Damien. It used to be online but I can't find it now. When his words still were fresh in my mind I recounted it to a girl I was dating. A few minutes later she said that was the first time any conversation made her physically ill. She had taken a break for a quick upchuck.
